Chinese Tones
A short introduction to Chinese tones. I created this lesson myself because I think anyone speaking Chinese WELL should get the tones right. Of course I would not get stuck on the issue and give up learning it just because of the difficulty. I am trying to encourage everyone to at least constantly think about trying to say things in the right tones. I will try to improve the lessons as I go alone.

Cristo si è fermato a Eboli – Carlo Levi
Cristo si è fermato a Eboli è l’opera più celebre di Carlo Levi. Scritta tra il 1943 e il 1944, durante la sua militanza nel Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale, viene pubblicata nel 1945, a guerra ormai conclusa. Confinato nel 1935 dal regime fascista ad Aliano, uno sperduto paesino della Basilicata, lo scrittore e pittore scopre un mondo fino a quel momento sconosciuto. Un mondo escluso e dimenticato, ‘quell’altro mondo, serrato nel dolore e negli usi, negato alla Storia e allo Stato, eternamente paziente’. Eboli è il paese dove la strada e la ferrovia si interrompono e cedono il passo alle terre aride e desolate della Lucania. Terre nelle quali la popolazione vive in condizioni di ingiustizia, miseria e arretratezza, e nelle quali lo Stato e le sue istituzioni non esistono.

Piccolo mondo antico di Antonio Fogazzaro
Il romanzo, meditato e lentamente composto fin dal 1889, è ambientato negli anni che precedono la seconda Guerra di Indipendenza, nella Valsolda, sulle sponde italiane del lago di Lugano. E’ la storia della famiglia del nobile Franco Maironi, cattolico e liberale, e della piccolo-borghese Luisa Rigey, al cui matrimonio si era opposta la filo-austriaca marchesa Orsola, nonna di Franco. Le difficoltà economiche e il senso profondo di schiettezza e di giustizia che anima Luisa, rispetto al carattere flessibile di Franco, rendono difficile il rapporto fra i due coniugi fino ad allontanarli quando la piccola figlia Maria muore annegando nel lago; ma mentre Luisa si chiude in se stessa e si dedica allo spiritismo nell’illusione di ricostituire un contatto con la bambina, Franco si trasferisce a Torino, dove lavora e acquisisce la coscienza della necessità di partecipare attivamente alla liberazione delle terre italiane dall’occupazione austriaca.

Ammianus Marcellinus, cum rerum gestarum scriptor ultimus Romanorum esset, lingua materna Graece locutus est. Quem inter annum p.C.n. 325 et 330 Antiochiae natum esse veri simile est. Quo quidem anno Ammianus mortuus sit, non constat, sed apparet eum anno 391 vivum fuisse. Ammianus iam iuvenis miles et protector domesticus factus est. Fuit adiutor Ursicini magistri equitum et variis in bellis – inter alia contra Persas cum eo militavit. Opus eius Latine scriptum res gestas Romanorum narravit ab anno 96 usque ad 378; initium autem deperditum est.

Incerti autoris “Historia Apollonii Regis Tyri”
Apollonius of Tyre is the subject of an ancient short novella, popular during medieval times. Existing in numerous forms in many languages, the text is thought to be translated from an ancient Greek manuscript, now lost. The earliest manuscripts of the tale, in a Latin version, date from the 9th or 10th century; the most widespread Latin versions are those of Gottfried von Viterbo, who incorporated it into his Pantheon of 1185 as if it were actual history, and a version in the Gesta Romanorum. Shakespeare’s play Pericles, Prince of Tyre was based in part on Gower’s version, with the change of name probably inspired by Philip Sidney’s Arcadia. Apollonius of Tyre was also a source for his plays Twelfth Night and The Comedy of Errors. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Perseus, ex “Fabulae Faciles” a Francis Ritchie
PERSEUS Acrisius, an ancient king of Argos, had been warned by an oracle that he should perish by the hand of his grandson. On discovering, therefore, that his daughter Danae had given birth to a son, Acrisius endeavored to escape his fate by setting both mother and child adrift on the sea. They were saved, however, by the help of Jupiter; and Perseus, the child, grew up at the court of Polydectes, king of Seriphos, an island in the Aegean Sea. On reaching manhood, Perseus was sent by Polydectes to fetch the head of Medusa, one of the Gorgons.

“Sklepy cynamonowe” – Bruno Schulz
“Sklepy cynamonowe” to pierwszy, debiutancki cykl opowiadań Brunona Schulza, które pierwotnie były postscriptami w listach do Debory Vogel i Władysława Riffa. Utwory te, pisane poetycką prozą, są fantastycznym przetworzeniem realiów przedwojennego miasteczka galicyjskiego, w którym dostrzec można podobieństwo do Drohobycza, rodzinnego miasta pisarza. Zbiór, w sposób wizyjny i oniryczny, opowiada dzieje rodziny kupieckiej, którym to dziejom Schulz nadał walory mityczne. (Summary by Mateusz Wycislik.)

ИРОНИЧНЫЕ СКАЗКИ М. Е. САЛТЫКОВА- ЩЕДРИНА
М. Е. Салтыков-Щедрин -русский Джонатан Свифт, к сожалению, недооцененный на Родине. Его ироничные сказки написаны более 130 лет назад, но они читаются так, как будто они написаны сегодня. В них мы видим наглых, вороватых чиновников, трусливых мещан, воинственных,жестоких и глупых руководителей,далеких от жизни мечтателей и суровые трудности жизни для простых людей.
